@saeternes Alex definitely sounds like a good therapist, you are lucky to have found him. My therapist has been excellent for some things, but not for my knee.
I will be looking forward to hearing what your ROM is when you are able to measure it. The woman I know in my water class who had robotic, I presume Mako, said hers was 145! I didn’t think that was even possible.

JK: must be something in the water??? I also have a woman who works out in my senior center pool, and after her 45 minute water exercise class she actually can pull her heel all the way to her normal size butt. Her TKR was 6 years ago, so not robotic at the time, I think. Maybe I can equal that, 5 years from now. There’s always hope.

145 is most likely measurement error- average knee bend is around 130 to 135 degrees.
